I am writing this from my desktop computer.

That may not sound like much, but it definitely is for me. My desktop hasn't had Internet since I moved it; it just sat here as a reminder of the Internet community I missed. It's been one part of why I've been so absent: I find it much easier to go through my inbox and flist on my nameless desktop than on anything else. Da helped me find and order a Wireless USB Adapter the day after Thanksgiving and it just arrived. :D

I'm also 10,000 words away from finishing NaNoWriMo (I can do that in four days).

I checked the nearby Adam & Eve store and they're hiring; I chatted with two of the employees, swapped stories, got a business card for where I should send my resume. Here's to hoping I can get in with a more career-changing resume and cover letter despite my lack of specific retail experience. I'll be working on that tonight.

After my NaNovel I'll be writing my hoggywartyxmas story, reading the last section of the final story for minerva_fest (can't believe it's taken me this long!), and finally getting around to replying to the beautiful comments mine received.

Also! Because I wanted a moment to squee over this: my story got nominated for something!!! More exclamation marks! Best Invented Magic for 'Sixth Sense' in the hpfanficfanpoll 2012 Fall-Winter Round! alksdjflkasdjf. I've never been nominated for anything before!! Thank you thank you to whoever nominated me! I squeed all over the place; I still am!!

That's me checked in for the moment. I'm diving back under now. Off to finish tidying, re-make my bed, and head downstairs to start going through my terribly neglected inbox (so sorry!) and work on my application.

All the best for the job-application as well!

I hope I can be back-back now! I imagine I still won't be able to catch up on my flist until the end of November--after I've won NaNo--but hopefully I'll be less Vanished!

I wonder if that might mean I have you to thank. ;D Thank you! And being nominated is certainly enough for me. I unfortunately doubt I'll have time to read the other stories--probably just quick scans if I can--but I'm sure they're all lovely too. (: I never thought I'd get nominated at all so this feels very much like Christmas!

Thank you! I'm nervous, but I suppose that only means I'm invested and that it's something I care about.
